    • how much money do you need to be granted a visa to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks?

      England Dec 25, 2016 at 12:22 PM

      In order to have the visa application approved, you need to show that you have a certain amount of money, the means to look after yourself for the duration of your stay and to get back to your home country on your own. You need to show that you have a reason to return home.. The person who will visit me from morocco is a student who wants to visit the UK for 1 or 2 weeks, they can also stay with me in my house so there is no need to pay for a hotel or anything like that, even food I would provide everything. But we dont know how much money they must show is in the bank account for the visa to be accepted or denied. There seems to be no guideline about any kind of threshold. Does anyone know more about how much money is needed for the visa application to be accepted?

      I am from the USA and traveling internationally for the first time to Newcastle. I have a layover at Heathrow during the travel. I know in the USA you have to go through immigration and customs at the first port of entry into the country. Do I have to go through immigration and customs before I catch my flight to newcastle?

    • VISA Question

      London Jan 1, 2017 at 5:01 PM

      Hello, guys. Here I have some dilemma. Due to UK's Immigration procedure, citizens of Ukraine need to obtain VISA to step on Her Majesty's soil. But, there are also some rumors that once you have NATIONAL LONG-TERM VISA (in my case, I'm currently holding National Long-term student VISA of Spain) from any EU/Schengen Agreement country, you could travel to GB without another. Please, reply me as soon as you can, because I've tried several times to figure it out both in UK's Government website and Spanish. None of them replied. Thank you in advance.

    • Travelling time between Terminal 5 and 4

      I'm arriving to terminal 5 on flight BA244 at 6:30, and I have to book another ticket which is departing from terminal 4. What time should I book this ticket to be sure I won't miss it? I have to go through the customs and baggage claim. I have an option on a KLM flight KL1010, which departs at 11:45, is it possible to take this flight or should I wait the next? The second option is to wait for another BA flight same departure time, but it costs 4x more than KLM's.

      Hi there,

      We are traveling to the UK for 2 weeks and will be staying in the Seaton Delaval area. Could anyone recommend health food stores / supermarkets that sells a good selection of fresh juices (fresh squeezed or cold pressed) and healthy food in general? Are there any organic supermarkets or places that juice in front of you? We've been told that Waitrose has a decent selection.

      Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

      UK train low cost tickets London-Newcastle

      by g.l.s.h Online Now Sep 17, 2014 at 11:42 PM

      Good day!

      During my visit to London this Dec. I intend to travel for 2 days to Newcastle. I've noticed that when booked in advance, train tickets can go as low as 16 pounds one way. The reservation system allows bookings for some 2.5 month in advance, which means that 8-9 Dec. bookings can be booked as for yesterday.

      My question is for those whom are familial with these tickets: when I search dates (Mondays, always) in Nov. or even Dec. 1st I can see these 16-28 pounds tickets available, however for Dec. 8-9 ALL tickets go for 120-150 pounds! which is a fortune when having a small family, and in comparison to domestic flights that go for 45-55 pounds (and which I want to avoid). Are these dates have any "special" demand for train tickets to Newcastle, or is it that the system starts publishing the special "book in advance" fares only a bit later?

      I would wait a bit for the low cost option, but if be advised that these dates would most likely be stable on the 120-150 pounds tickets, I would just take the flight option.

      Thanks!

    • Moving to Newcastle for school/work

      by jen_m78 Online Now Jun 27, 2012 at 3:14 PM

      Hello!

      My fiancee and I will be moving to Newcastle Upon Tyne in August. We currently live in the San Jose area of California (silicon valley.) I'm moving to attend Newcastle Uni and he will be joining me and transfering his job. We have never been to the UK before and have so many questions! Here is what we really need to know:

      1) City Centre or Quayside? Which is better for the under 25 crowd? Pros? Cons? Pricing isn't a huge factor since we are coming from such an expensive city in Ca.

      2) Mobile phones: we have tmobile currently and are considering going with Tmobile UK upon arrival. Good idea?

      3) Dog: we are bringing our 4yr old dog with us. Is Newcastle (generally) a pet friendly city?

      4) Rental (or letting) policies: what is generally required to let a flat or home in England? We will have a deposit prepared but are there specific documents required?

      5) Culture: I am a biracial young woman (Italian/Black American.) Are there many types of people in Newcastle or will we be looked down upon?) We come from such a diverse city, I want to know what to expect!

      6) Banks: Which bank(s) are best for temporary accounts? We will be in Newcastle for 1-1.5yrs

      7) weather: we know it's cold and rainy usually....right?! Does it ever get hot or snow?

      8) Driving: I am terrified of driving on the opposite side of the street! Will I need a new/different drivers license to drive in the UK? Or since I have a valid Ca license, will that work?

      Anything else that you would like to share would be so helpful to us! We appreciate your help! Looking forward to our journey!
